Bryan Robson has confirmed Manchester United have enquired about West Brom goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.
Reports have linked The Red Devils with a £2 million bid for the Poland international, who impressed in The Premiership last season.
Following The Baggies' relegation from the top flight, question marks have been placed over the futures of several members of Robson's squad.
Kuszczak recently stated he would be happy to stay at The Hawthorns, but he could now be offered the chance of a move to Old Trafford.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is looking for a reliable number two to Edwin van der Sar, having allowed Tim Howard to join Everton on a season-long loan.
The promising Ben Foster is also likely to spend next term away from United, prompting Ferguson to enquire after Kuszczak.
The 24-year-old had a stunning game against United at the end of the 2004/05 season after coming on as a substitute in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
He established himself as West Brom's first choice last term, following an injury to Chris Kirkland, and was selected in Poland's World Cup squad.
But a mistake in a pre-tournament friendly against Colombia cost the former Hertha Berlin keeper his chance of dislodging Artur Boruc.
Robson is now digesting United's enquiry and reports have suggested he would like to take either Giuseppe Rossi or Kieran Richardson on loan in exchange.
The Red Devils, though, would prefer to keep the pair at the club, but would reportedly be willing to allow keeper Luke Steele to head to the Midlands.
